Textbook:
R. Larson, R. Hostetler, and B.  Edwards, Calculus with Analytic Geometry, seventh edition.  Boston, Houghton Mifflin Company, 2002.


Course Description:
The algebra and calculus of vectors and vector functions, constant termed sequences and series, power series and convergence criteria.  Pre-requisite:  MA211.  3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:
Active participation is encouraged.  Class time will be spent in instructor presentations, class discussion, independent working of problems and some group work.  Students are urged to  be actively thinking;  they should be continuously considering how to solve the problem being discussed.  Written homework assignments and regular testing will help develop skills.

Learning Outcomes:
1. Perform vector operations and interpret the results geometrically.

2. Use three dimensional vectors to solve real life problems.

3. Find the dot product and the cross product of two vectors.

4. Find the distance between points, planes and lines in space.

5. Recognize equations for cylindrical and quadratic surfaces and for surfaces of revolution.

6. Differentiate and integrate a vector-valued function.

7. Find and use a partial derivative of a function of two or three variables.  Use the chain rules.

8. Evaluate an iterated integral.

9. Use double and triple integrals.

Academic Honesty:
Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.  
Park University 2004-2005 Undergraduate Catalog
Page 101
ACADEMIC HONESTY: “Academic Honesty is required of all members of a learning community.  Hence, Park will not tolerate cheating or plagiarism on tests, examinations, papers or other course assignments.  Students who engage in such dishonesty may be given failing grades or expelled from Park.”

Plagiarism:
Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. <a href="http://www.park.edu/catalog">

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "WH".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  6. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
